At long last, bars and restaurants are reopening in Canada. As consumers begin to reunite with family and friends, there is extra pressure on restaurants to make their post-pandemic reunions more memorable and meaningful than ever. Bringing "back of the house" cooking in front of guests is a great way to add intrigue and human connection to modern-day dining experiences.
Summer is approaching at rapid speeds and after 14 months of staying indoors other than to grab essential items, things are slowly progressing towards opening back up in Canada. Staycations are the newest trend and as restrictions ease up, the excitement to reunite with loved ones is on everyone's mind. While this summer won't look quite the same as summer's past, there are a lot of thrilling trends retailers and wholesalers can look forward to focusing on when encouraging consumers to safely get back out there.
In many cities and provinces, ground zero for the Covid pandemic began in senior care communities across Canada. Because of their population density and focus on communal spaces, these types of residences have been hit hard.
Canadian foodservice organizations can breathe a little easier as provincial and regional governments begin to consider carefully planned re-opening to the public. During the COVID-19 pandemic, emergency conditions restricted restaurants, school cafeterias and convenience stores to takeout, delivery or drive-through. The re-opening date varies across the country, but thankfully, it is in sight.
One of the biggest obstacles to creating consumer confidence during the current coronavirus pandemic is the potential of virus-filled air. Whether it's a restaurant serving up Canadian comfort food or a retail outlet selling sweaters, every industry is facing a similar set of challenges.
COVID-19 has drastically altered and changed the world as we know it. The foodservice industry is one of the many fields of business that have been forced to reevaluate the way in which they do their work. On top of that, companies and businesses are forced to take extreme precautions if they wish to try to function and survive during the current times. Luckily, in the restaurant and food world, there are no shortage of innovators and designers, and many people have already begun taking steps in another direction. Take a closer look at how COVID-19 is forcing us into the golden age of vending machines.
